Communications firm R-Group has won the networking infrastructure contract for the $95 million first stage of Perth Rectangular stadium.
The Department of Sport and Recreation have today announced R-Group as the winner of the tender for the first stage of the local area network supply and installation.
The tender will see R-Group provide a fully functional LAN to support digital signage, point of sales, AV and a secure Internet firewall, and 24-hour support for all the infrastructure installed.
R-Group’s Senior Project Manager, Richard Bone, said R-Group was delighted to win this contract with the purpose-built stadium for rectangular sports.
“Our win for this tender has come off the back of our experience from the work we did on the Perth Arena project and regional large scale information and communications projects," he said.
“On the Perth Arena contract we were responsible for providing a similar setup,” Bone said.
The $95.14 million stage 1 redevelopment of the facility is now complete.
The redevelopment included a covered eastern grandstand complete with new food, beverage and toilet facilities, a 250-seat barbecue terrace and seating for approximately 420 patrons in open corporate boxes.
A new uncovered permanent southern stand, two large video replay boards, a new whole-of-stadium PA system, CCTV surveillance system and new pitch lighting are also completed.
Capacity of the stadium is now approximately 20,500.
